The Next Always : Number 1 in series Paperback
by Nora Roberts
Part of the Inn at Boonsboro Trilogy series
The historic hotel in Boonsboro has endured war and peace, changing hands, even rumored hauntings.
Now it's getting a major facelift from the Montgomery brothers and their eccentric mother.
Beckett is the architect of the family, and his social life consists mostly of talking shop over pizza and beer.
But there's another project he's got his eye on: the girl he's been waiting to kiss since he was fifteen.After losing her husband and returning to her hometown, Clare Brewster soon settles into her life as the mother of three young sons while running the town's bookstore.
Busy, with little time for romance, Clare is drawn across the street by Beckett's transformation of the old inn, wanting to take a closer look . . . at the building and the man behind it.With the grand opening inching closer, Beckett's happy to give Clare a private tour - one room at a time.
It's no first date, but these stolen moments are the beginning of something new - and open the door to the extraordinary adventure of what comes next . . .

Review by suzanne5002
There is a historic hotel in town which is in desperate of an upgrade. A family of architects decide to rennovate it and bring more business to the town. We read about the process and hardwork it takes them through this journey.One of the sons rekindles a high school crush towards the proprieter of the town's bookstore. She also has 3 sons who are quite young. Is he up to the challenge of having an instant family?Between reading about the hotel and the romance in the story, it is quite delightful. Nora Roberts is one of my favorite authors. Her books are fabulous!!
Review by gogglemiss
Nice little story from Nora Roberts. Finished it to two days.Having read soooh many of her books, the premise has been familiar. Brothers building/renovating hotel/inn etc and romancing the local/newcomer in home town. The details of the refurbishment did get in the way of the romantic storyline, but while I still love Nora Roberts stories, in the same way as a warm cosy quilt, I can't help thinking, that her earlier offerings were better.
